When it comes to choosing the right high school lockers, it’s important to understand what your options are and what’s best for your school. Choosing the right selection of lockers will show your commitment to making sure that the students have a safe and secure place to put their belongings.
How many students are there?
One of the first questions you may ask when looking to purchase high school lockers is how many students will be using these lockers. Once you confirm the exact number of students that will use the lockers, you can determine the quantity needed.
How much space is needed?
Each high school is different so the locker space needed may vary depending on what the students are encouraged to carry, or not carry. Most commonly, for corridor high school lockers, you should choose one that is able to accommodate the following items:
- 35 lbs of books
- Binder, etc.
Which size locker is the best for your school?
When researching high school lockers, most of the time the best size will be a 15″ x 15″ x 36″ double tier locker. This heavy duty locker will accommodate all of your student’s day-to-day needs.
Features of the double tier locker include:
- Heavy Duty 14 gauge steel doors
- Heavy Duty 20 gauge steel bottoms (remember we have 35 lbs. of books
- Single point locking when using padlock (no moving parts!)
- Recessed Handle lift type when using built-in locks
What warranty is offered?
The lockers you choose will more than likely be used on a daily basis. When making a decision on what locker purchase, it’s important to know if there is a warranty available to protect your investment. If there is a warranty, you should be clear on what exactly it covers and for what length of time.
In summary, when looking to purchase high school lockers, you know that there is a list of questions that you have to ask in order to determine which is the best choice for you.
